About the show

Theatreworks USA presents a free family musical based on the popular picture book of the same name. More…

When the cat catcher nabs Pete rocking out after bedtime, he is sent to live with the Biddle family to learn some manners. The whole family is immediately taken with Pete, except for young Jimmy, the most organized second grader on Earth. As the end of school approaches, Jimmy has trouble completing his art assignment. Pete turns out to be the perfect friend to help him out. Join Jimmy and Pete as they both learn a little something new about inspiration and friendship. Recommended for children ages 5 to 9. Free tickets are given out on a first-come, first-served basis beginning one hour prior to the first performance of the day. There's a four-ticket limit per adult.
